Dumpster Duels 7: A down and dirty overnight puppet showdown
Posted 7/17/2014
Dumpster Duels returns for its seventh down and DIRTY puppet show. Presented by BareBones Productions, Dumpster Duels is a showdown between three rival theater groups who have a pile of scavenged junk and 30 hours to create a puppet show. The teams will each get a dumpster filled with materials collected beforehand and will spend all day Saturday, through the night, and on into Sunday creating characters, stories, and magic from the trash. At the kickoff, Saturday, Aug. 2, noon in the parking lot of Tiny Town Studios, 2407 Washington St. NE, the referee will be introduced along with any requirements about characters or themes to include, and then the teams will be assigned trash piles by the flip of a coin. The public is invited to come at any point in the process to watch the transformation of trash into a wild and raucous puppet show. At 5 p.m. on Sunday, Aug. 3 the teams will present their shows. Who will prevail? Audience applause along with heckling, bribery, and completely arbitrary rules will decide the winner. An after party will follow the show. There are no tickets required for the show, but there is a suggested donation of $5-$20. More information at www.barebonespuppets.org.

Architect Avenue walking tour, Aug. 19
Posted 7/15/2014
Architect AvenuePreserve Minneapolis offers unique tours that highlight the natural, built, and cultural treasures found throughout the City. On Tuesday, Aug. 19, 6:30 p.m., take a walking tour of Architect Avenue in Northeast Minneapolis, led by Kathy Kullberg. n 1905, a contest was held in one of the farthest corners of Hennepin County for well-designed homes for the up-and-coming middle class. Major Twin Cities architects were solicited to develop affordable homes, which would combine "luxury, elegance, utility, and comfort"...and each had to cost $3,000 or less (including landscaping and sidewalk). Twelve local architects submitted designs; six were chosen and built. This mini-development became "Architect Avenue," developed and promoted by Thomas Lowry, and all six of these unique and original homes still exist. This tour walks about 3/4 of a mile. Cost of the tour is $8. Pre-register online at www.preserveminneapolis.org.
